Harry Daniel used both names, CRESSWELL and CORBY and was a champion cyclist
He had at least 2 children and 2 of them were also notables in the cycling world.

In his WWI file, the stat dec from Edith CRESSWELL doesn't get the year of his mother's death quite right. Edith says she took Harry into her home on the night of Elizabeth CORBY's death in 1901, however it was actually 1902. (9647/1902)

Modified to add: this one says "wife of William"

Then she seems to have organised a renewed birth registration for him in the parental names of herself and Frederick!
